Abstract : The paper is concerned with the derivation and discussion of the velocity potential equation for steady linearized motions of gas mixtures in which any number k of independent reactions take place. In a first part a number of thermodynamic notions, of interest in the subsequent development of the analysis, are briefly recalled. The second part deals with the derivation of the generalized potential equation and with the analysis of its essential features. In a last part the limiting forms assumed by the potential equation when a number of reactions can be considered either frozen or in equilibrium are derived and discussed. Explicit expressions of the potential equation and of all other pertinent quantities for indicative cases of plane motions are listed in an Appendix. (Author)
